2011 Honda CR-Z Starts At $19,950 In Late August
The gasoline-electric hybrid has a 1.5-liter iVTEC 4-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission which works with Honda's Integrated Motor Assist. An automatic Continuously Variable Transmission is available and includes steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for manual-like gear-ratio control.
A new, exclusive 3-mode drive system allows the driver to configure the vehicle's responsiveness for Sport, Normal or Econ (Economy) driving modes. Driver efficiency tools include Eco Assist™ and Eco Scoring, which together can help drivers find improvements to efficient driving styles, while also comparing economy achievements to previous trips as well as the life of the vehicle.
The CR-Z is available in two equipment grades – the CR-Z (base) and the CR-Z EX. Standard features on the CR-Z include an AM/FM/CD/USB audio system with six speakers, automatic climate control, power windows and door locks, remote entry, cruise control, and more.
The CR-Z EX adds a 360-watt AM/FM/CD high-power audio system with seven speakers – including a subwoofer – Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, leather-wrapped steering wheel and more. The CR-Z EX is available with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition.
